1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'm so pissed to see all these awesome deals on solid navy blue suits in sizes that aren't mine. A new navy suit is literally the only thing on my "have to have" list. :cloud:

    I'm cheap, and I keep telling myself the suit I bought off of theWGP (more recent Isaia label - base s- solid navy aquaspider) will work :laugh:

    I get it today, so if it doesn't work I'll be buying this one :)

    You are a size 40? What are your measurements?

    Ah, i was going to say, if this size 52 Isaia doesn't work for me or someone else who called dibs I would offer it to you. Do you usually wear a size 38 jacket?

    I am in the same boat with pretty much the same measurements. It is rather annoying.

    It's very subjective to the maker, TBH and I can get away with 18.5 if I want a more off-the shoulder look. Of what I own, I'm a 50R/40R in BC, Isaia, Sartorio, Armani, Belvest and Samuelsohn. Then I am a 38 in D&G, PRL, RLPL. Then I am a 41 in BB Fitz. I really just go by my measurements and not by marked size. As you can imagine my searches run from 38-42.

    I will keep you in mind for this Isaia then if it doesn't work for me.

    If it makes you feel any better it's like a 42 VERY L... 26.5 is 2 inches over my sleeve length and regulars fit me well. 34 inch length is either including the collar or 4 inches longer than regular.

    Trying to make it look all stealth and covert-like. Would go great with standard issue jungle boots.
